I have a short stature, muscle weakness, chronic pain & problem with my teeth. My right leg is at a 40 degree angle & my left somewhat twisted to the right. Growing up was hard. kids say & do the meanest things. I was made fun of all my life, stared at, Things that scarred me for life. I held in my anger, feelings and pain. I built walls and let no one in. my life changed almost 6yrs ago. my mom died from heart failure due to diabetes. I never got to say I was sorry, I forgive her and I love her so much. That I understand why I never got help to correct this. After my mom died I went into a depression. I seen specialist which their info angered me even more. I'm in a wheelchair now, I let myself go, I didn't care anymore. I was going to live life like there's no tomorrow. Finally I realized i'm headed on my mom's path. I'm starting to learn to let go and most of all forgive. God made me different for a reason and I want to show the world why. I want to inspire the world. I want to show them that people who are different can make a difference. I am going to lose this weight and I am going to walk again and I so want you to follow my journey. https://deetaz316.wordpress.com xoxoxo

  3. thanks for the interest in my blog, this jam is special.

    I hope you will stay encouraged and take one day at a time. It’s not easy but I believe all things are possible with God even though we can ask thousands of questions when bad things happen. But God loves us, I just chose to trust it . Even though it might be a different case but I saw a woman coming out of a wheelchair after 23 years (you can watch on youtube. Before that she beat cancer and on top of it she was a pastor so she had to deal with all kind of internal struggles but she hung in there and didn’t stop believing.

  7. Thank you for visiting my blog. I have been reading your posts and I am amazed by what a determined woman you are. If I had half your get up and go, I would be a very skinny me by now!!
    I read that your Mother passed away and that you went into a depression after that. I went into a depression when I lost my Dad. It is so hard to get out of again, but we can do it!!
    I too am trying to lose weight (my eldest son gets married in two years time – how did I get so old??), so lets do it together!
    Good Luck and Keep on Keeping on!!

      1. thanks! I have decided that if I can give up smoking (33 years ago) I can stop eating cakes, biscuits (cookies) and sweets(candy). So far I have done OK on cakes and sweets but a major fail on biscuits yesterday!! Oh well. I am determined. Am drafting a blog on this and will post it soon.

  9. Good luck. Have been there with the weight issues. No quick fix with fad diets, just a question of eating sensibly, allowing yourself the occasional treat (and not feeling guilty afterwards) and taking each day at a time.
    Being in a wheelchair sucks. Have just had a stint on crutches (hopeless) so you have my utmost respect for doing what you do.
    Have had my share of depression too. Remember PMA : Positive Mental Attitude. You can and you will, it just might take a little longer.
    Keep smiling! πŸ™‚
